Another finish!

A few years ago I flew down to Texas to visit a dear friend. Another friend flew in from Minnesota and we went to a cabin in Louisiana and spent a few days quilting. We all made Ricky Timm's Convergence Quilts. This is one of the 3 I made. Over the weekend I finally put borders on the quilt and today I quilted and bound it. It will live in my studio as a quilting sample.

My son went back to school today, so now I can go steal the log cabin quilt off of his bed, measure it and see how much bigger I need to make the 25 patch quilt for the other bed. I'm hoping I can make it the same size by adding an extra border or two, rather than having to make more rows of blocks! Next on the machine are some customer quilts, then I hope to find time to finish another of my own. I'm really enjoying finishing things for a change!

This is one of the first Convergence quilts that I truly love. It might be the way the colors all interact with each other - how did you choose the colors - from the border fabric?

I'll have to blog about the $300 Convergence wallhanging that my friends in the island bought while we were there. I'll try to get the picture out there today. You'll see why yours is so spectacular!

I have never made a convergence quilt but I've quilted quite a few. They sure look fun!
